R.P. Gillies : German Stories, selected from the works of Hoffmann, De la Motte-0Fouque, Pichler, Kruse, and others

'Of all the new works you have sent me I admire Gillies' stories by far the most. I have scarcely ever met with a work that pleased me better and was so truly congenial to my mind. The ease and simple elegance of the stile is exquisite. That work should certainly have a great circulation I have great faults with Mrs Johnston's work in which there is however great genius but the anachronisms are without end and the characters too much borrowed from Scott Beyond all the story is forced and confused beyond all measures. Our ladies were pleased with it beyond measure so it must have something very fascinating'.

Century: 1800-1849     Reader/Listener/Group: James Hogg      Print: Book
